Talking Points

Global Markets

Trends, Growth & Opportunity We live in an increasingly globalised world, one that is rapidly changing and expanding to incorporate new international trade deals, problems in European markets and big shifts in economic powers. In this rapidly changing economic climate, Saul provides comprehensive insights into how your businesses can reduce risk, maximise opportunity, keep up and grow! Previous presentations have included: • The Global Financial System • Free Trade Agreements • Prospects for commodity prices • Is a 'Currency War' going on?

Australia’s Economic Horizon

A glimpse at our long term future Saul has been described as the most 'pre-eminent macro-economist in Australia'. His extensive knowledge comes from monitoring, analysing and predicting trends in the Australian economy as a core part of his numerous roles as Chief Economist for well over 25 years. In this presentation, Saul ties together macroeconomic data and complex fiscal policy to provide valuable insights into how current economic trends can impact your business. Previous presentations have included: • The Importance of Growth to Australia's Long Term Future • Australian Society and Politics • Talks on Productivity and Commodities and Labour • The 'Big Picture' for the Australian residential property market • After the 'Resources Boom' - is Recession Inevitable?

The Rise of China, India and Asia

What it means for Australia By the end of the decade Asia will account for 39% of the world's GDP. Considering that around 75% of Australian exports are going to Asia, you simply can’t understand the nation's long-term economic prospects without a good understanding of what’s happening in the major Asian economies. Saul's profound knowledge of these emerging economic powers can help corporations worldwide understand what the global distribution of economic production will look like for their business, assess their 'readiness' to adapt to these new markets, and much more. Previous presentations have included: • China and the New Economic Order • China and India in the World Economy • Economic and Social Change in Asia • China's Slowing Economy - Is it serious & what does it mean for Australia?
